It may seem like an oxymoron to see a brand new Mercedes-Benz E 400 Cabriolet winding down the remote and rugged countryside of Ontario’s Highlands, but for writer Christopher Korchin, the trip was all about the unexpected. From serene vistas featuring “staring cows and summer foliage”, to old logging and mining roads that were built with pride “and often a contempt for straight lines”, Christopher discovers why the Ottawa Valley and Lanark County have become a mecca for driving enthusiasts, or just anyone looking for a change of pace. Read his story about staying in a boutique hotel, buying fresh eggs, uncovering local stories and eating the best chips from a truck. You never know what you’ll happen upon on a road trip in this surprising region.
